Conveyor: for feeding air conditioners into shredder 

Double Shaft Shredder: for primary size reduction

Conveyor: for transporting shredded pieces to next equipment

Vertical Granulator: for further size reduction of various fractions

Conveyor: for conveying granulated pieces to next equipment 

Magnetic Separator: for separating ferrous metal
